Baby girl

I was asked to make a card for a christening. I’d previously made one for this lady so wanted to make this one similar. To the right here you can see the boy card I made previous that this one is made to match.

The image I’ve chosen is by Mo’s Digital Pencil and is coloured in with copics. Flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, and the lace is from LLC as well. I am pleased with how the cards are reasonably similar, but yet a little bit different. I’ve deliberately hidden the name as I don’t like names of people showing on my cards in case they don’t want it displayed.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, R20, (hair) E51, E53, E55, E57, (dress) C1, C3, C5, RV00, R81, R83

A wee frosty snowman

It’s snowing today. That’s a pretty perfect backdrop for the current theme at Copic Marker Norge: Winter.

A couple of months ago I got a semi-challenge to colour up a Wee Stamps image. As it’s been a while since I’ve coloured one of hers, at least that have ended up here on the blog, I decided it was time. I chose this adorable snowman. I’ve used some Martha Stewart punchers, Noor Design and Maja Design papers, distress ink and Live and Love Crafts lace.

Here is another photo.

Copics used: (snow/snowman) B0000, C1, C3, C5, (clothes) E42, E43, E44, E47, BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78, 100, W3, W5, W7, (leaves) YG03, G82, G99, (birds, nose) B0000, B000, B91, B93, YR04, Y04, Y17

Lucy Loo

Apparently it is already mid-October! That went fast, didn’t it? I really need to get cracking on my Christmas cards methinks.

Copic Marker Norge is hosting a new challenge, rough and tough. Not my cup of tea, to be honest, but when you’re on the design team it’s a bit hard to get out of it hahaha. So, I went out of my comfort zone and coloured up a cool girl in a larger format than usual and made a CAS card out of it. Predominately it was the size of the image and the close up that is a new adventure. I haven’t coloured so much hair on one image before, at least not of this size. It was fun though, you should try also if you haven’t!

I played around more with my copics for the background and made some pink splashes using a lot of the colourless blender. And the image? That’s Lucy Loo from The East Wind.

Card making course with Tracy Payne

On Saturday afternoon I couldn’t shake the thought that there was something going on this weekend that I’d forgotten about. Suddenly it hit me: there is a big scrapping fair in the city, hosted by North Star Stamps, where Tracy Payne of Noor Design UK is visiting and doing courses. I’d forgotten all about it!! Oh no! I was gutted! I went to Tracy’s FB and typed a post along the lines of “Noooo, I forgot about your courses!!”. Then the sweetheart responded she had one spot left for Sunday. It was the class I had wanted the most as well! Did that make my weekend or what!! I am so happy. It is the first card making course I’ve ever attended, and I doubt it will be my last! The card on this post is what she had us making. Isn’t it the best?! I am so pleased I got to meet Tracy, she is such a lovely person!

A lot of the products is of course by Noor Design: the snowflake and mistletoe dies, the red tag, the stencils we used to cut out the window and card shape as well as the bricks, gesso and structure paste for the white elements. The papers we were provided with are by Pion, as is the adorable image. I honestly don’t know where the rest of the goodies are from, but it wouldn’t surprise me if you can get a hold of some of them at Live and Love Crafts!

And of course I made it home with a big grin on my face along with a few new goodies, including the wonderful window stencil and a few Noor Design dies!

One thing is for certain: this card is going up as one of my Christmas decorations!
